Looking to go to Memorial lakes but haven't been there since the flood in 2013. Anyone have recent experience with the trail?

The bank plus trail is washed out starting about a kilometre in. Right now, Jeff E (Parks trail technician) is looking for a new start to the trail. Might be built next year. Jeff said the rest of the trail is as before, but he intends to make improvements, especially to the last bit up to third lake.

Good news. About 80 m of trail near the beginning has been realigned to miss out the shale bank that had gotten so bad someone had slung a rope across it for people to hang on to. The new trail goes farther along the right bank, crosses to the left bank and 500 m higher up the valley recrosses to the right bank and there joins the original trail. This is a professional job with two sturdy bridges. Having said that, the mossy left-bank section needs the tread trodden in as will happen as more people use it.

No improvements higher up.
